Robert was fantastic. He was very thorough during our appointment; he discussed, and even showed me, the wear-and-tear on parts he replaced and offered helpful observations about the condition of my vehicle; he really made me feel like my car was in good hands. He did not push me in to additional repairs, as often happens when you visit a mechanic. This was my first experience with YourMechanic and Robert answered all the questions which I had about YourMechanic and how it works. He was extremely friendly and I will absolutely request him on any future repairs and maintenance. I really liked the convenience and affordability of YourMechanic and most of all I highly recommend Robert!

All about Valve Cover Gasket Replacement

The valve cover is a metal cover that is found on very top of the engine. The valve cover is attached to the engine by a gasket made of rubber or cork. The valve cover and gasket seal the top of the engine and prevent oil leaks. These covers are removable so the mechanic can access the valves for adjustment. Because of the high temperature of the engine, it is common for the valve cover gasket to get brittle and break. If the gasket is worn out, it will leak engine oil and the top of the engine will be covered in oil. Since the engine is losing oil, running the car for too long without an inspection and repair can cause engine damage.
